OBAMA TO HEADLINE AL SHARPTON CONFERENCE
Breitbart Big Government ^ | April | WARNER TODD HUSTON

Posted on 04/06/2014 4:13:59 PM PDT by Hojczyk

President Barack Obama is set to headline Al Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN) conference that is being held in New York April 9th through April 12th.

The Sharpton conference ostensibly is to "honor" the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Organizers claim that the event is not just for honoring King but for "proactively engaging in dialogue that will spawn change." Al Sharpton founded NAN in 1991 when he was but a community agitator in New York, long before he became an MSNBC TV host. For his work with the organization, NAN paid Sharpton nearly $250,000 in 2011.

But the organization has had numerous money problems and has even been investigated by the federal government. In 2006, the IRS fined the organization for not properly reporting its taxes. It still owes $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties. Sharpton has also used his position in NAN to shake down several corporations for donations. To get the cash, Sharpton repeatedly issued veiled threats in which he promised not to boycott the companies--in exchange for donations.

Al Sharpton was convicted of defamation for his criminal actions during the Tawana Brawley rape hoax. Four years later, he founded NAN. That same year, the community agitator went on to inflame the Crown Heights riots.

Obama is going to the event to learn some new scam tricks from the Rev-Runnnnd Sharpie.

The whole time he's there, I hope the Prez keeps his wallet stuffed in the elastic waistband of his Fruit of the Loom panties......and checks for it every 10 minutes to make sure it's still there.

Al Sharpton, the man who had his goons murder 8 people at Freddy’s Fashion Mart?
Maybe Obama likes him so much for attempting to launder money for cocaine deals with mobster Michael Franzese.

Incredible. Blacks are about (based on an optimistic government count) 12% of our population, and gays are between 1-2%. Probably “professional blacks” (that is, people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson) and “professional gays” (that is, the leaders of pressure groups) are about .01% of our population. But between them, they’re controlling the entire country, thanks to the Democratic Party.

“proactively engaging in dialogue that will spawn change.”

We strive to have a conversation that will speak truth to power, inspire new paradigms, grow diversity and ...

Whenever I see this kind of political gobbling, I know a lefty’s talking.

Unbelievable

Through this action it is clear that the WH is messaging the next two and a half years are basically going to be "Let's get Whitey" and spread his money around.

Still, it's better than if that scumbag Romney won the WH and implemented 95% of the same marxist homosexual agenda with the official GOP seal of approval.

Democrats are going to lose a significant portion of the white vote.

Obama wants to celebrate the death of the Korean shopkeeper who died as a result of Sharpton inflaming a mob. Obama also celebrates the performance art of Tawana Brawley.

He grew up in a prosperous, suburban family (his dad was a landlord and businessman) and was a child prodigy as a preacher. By age 7, he was touring with gospel great Mahalia Jackson and Bishop F.D. Washington, the renowned Pentacostal minister of Brooklyn’s Washington Temple Church of God in Christ as “the Wonder Boy Preacher.”

At age 10, however, his parents divorced due to an affair his dad had with Sharpton’s half-sister (ie his dad’s step-daughter.) Sharpton’s mother was forced to go on welfare, and at one point they went without electricity for 6 months. Al became an ordained minister shortly after his parents’ divorce.

Al got involved in social activism during his teenage years, organizing several youth protests before he graduated from high school in 1972, and forming a national youth movement, named “National Youth Movement.” After two years of college, he dropped out and worked as national touring manager for singer James Brown, where he met his wife Kathy. (They have two teenage daughters.)

BUSTED: Caught on an FBI Surveillance Tape Discussing a Cocaine Deal

The television show HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel showed a 1983 FBI videotape in which Al Sharpton is seen talking about laundering drug money with former mobster Michael Franzese, a Mafioso-turned-undercover-FBI informant posing as a cocaine dealer. Now you might think something like this might be bad news for a presidential candidate, but to hear Sharpton talk about it, there’s nothing unseemly about it.

http://realchange.org/sharpton.htm

But the drug dealer was really an undercover FBI agent in a probe of boxing corruption. Sharpton claimed the tape was a “total attempt to set up and criminalize people,” that it was leaked to scuttle his possible presidential bid, and that HBO distorted the evidence by showing only selected portions of the tape. He also clamed that a second tape existed that exonerated him.

Sharpton sued HBO for defamation and asked for $1 billion in damages. (As if he had a billion dollar reputation before the tape aired.) HBO Sports spokesman Ray Stallone described the suit as “so silly that it is unworthy of comment.” Nothing has come of it since it was filed.

Supporting a Communist Front and Angela Davis

In the February 9, 1971 edition of the Communist Party USA newspaper Daily World, CPUSA member Stephanie Allan wrote about a pair of recent rallies (in Chicago and in White Plains, New York) which had been held to support a CPUSA front called The Committee to Free Angela Davis. At the time, Davis was in prison for her role in abetting the murder of a California judge. Eliseo Medina was one of the speakers at the Chicago event, while Sharpton addressed the New York rally. According to Stephanie Allan, Sharpton and fellow speaker J.L. Scott “exposed the connection between [the] A&P [Corporation], U.S. monopoly capitalism, racism and imperialism, and related these to the Angela Davis case and the threat to the vital rights of the Black people.”

Money-Laundering Suspicion

A 2002 telecast of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel showed a 1983 FBI surveillance video in which Sharpton could be seen discussing a money-laundering scheme with mobster-turned-informant Michael Franzese, onetime captain for the Colombo crime family. On the tape, Sharpton appeared to offer to broker a meeting between Don King and a South American drug lord. No indictments were filed.

Sharpton Derides Mayor Dinkins As a “Ni**er Whore”

During the administration (1989-93) of New York City mayor David Dinkins (an African American), Sharpton angrily denounced Dinkins (when the latter was unsupportive of Sharpton’s activism) in the following terms:

“David Dinkins, you wanna be the only ni**er on television, only ni**er in the newspaper, only ni**er that can talk. Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, ’cause you got the only ni**er problem. ‘Cause you know if a black man stood up next to you, they would see you for the whore that you really are.” (Click here for audio.)

On another occasion, Sharpton referred to Dinkins as “that ni**er whore turning tricks in City Hall.”

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=1527

The Racist Kean College Speech

Also in 1994, Sharpton delivered an incendiary speech at New Jersey’s Kean College, where he said:

“White folks was in the caves while we [blacks] was building empires … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was … we taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”[3]

Sharpton subsequently explained that while his use of the word “homos” may have been “irresponsible,” it “is not a homophobic term”[4]

The Kean College speech also featured Sharpton explaining that America’s founders consisted of “the worst criminals, the rejects they sent from Europe ... to the colonies.”[5] “So [if] some cracker,” he continued, “come and tell you ‘Well, my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold you pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was crooks.”[6] Sharpton later defended his use of the word “cracker,” calling it merely a “colloquial term used to describe a certain kind of bigot, who hates both blacks and Jews. It’s certainly not a racist term and certainly not an anti-Semitic term, because a cracker hates Jews and blacks.”[7]

Appearance at a Socialist Scholars Conference

In 1998 Sharpton was a featured speaker at the Socialist Scholars Conference in New York.

Violating Federal Election Laws

In April 2009, Sharpton and his NAN were fined $285,000 for having violated election rules during Sharpton’s 2004 presidential bid. According to the Federal Election Commission:

Strategizing with Obama to Push Tax Hikes on the Wealthy

On December 4, 2012, Sharpton and several other “influential progressive” advisors (as described by White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest) met with President Barack Obama to strategize on how to best sell the American public on the need to raise taxes on people earning $250,000 or more, while extending the Bush-era tax cuts for all other U.S. residents. Also in attendance at the meeting were Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, MSNBC host Ed Schultz, and Arianna Huffington.

Rev Al Sharpton on FBI Tape - Drug Dealer & Snitch

Sharpton on drug sting tape

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2002

A shocking FBI surveillance tape shows the Rev. Al Sharpton discussing a major drug deal with an undercover agent posing as a South American kingpin.

The black activist was offered thousands of dollars as a cut for arranging bulk sales of cocaine on the 1983 videotape, which will be shown tonight on HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”

“I can get pure coke ... for about 35,000 a kilo,” says Victor Quintana, the FBI agent, as Sharpton nods during the sting operation. “But I gotta get, you know, more than one.”

“Right,” Sharpton replies.

“Ten kilograms is, like, $350,000,” Quintana says. “That’s a drop in the bucket, you know. We can go bigger.”

Sharpton nods.

“Every kilogram we bring in is 3,500 to you. How does that sound?” Quintana asks, as Sharpton nods again. “So we bring in 10, you’ll make $35,000.

“I hear you,” Sharpton replies.

Sharpton admitted yesterday that he appears on the never-before-seen tape but insisted he was rebuffing a government attempt to set him up.
